Microsoft at a Crossroads

11 Apr ’07

Mary Jo Foley on a Goldman Sachs report describing Microsoft as being at a crossroads – pretty much the same crossroads most of the ‘tropolis spent a lot of keystrokes denying after Paul Graham posted “Microsoft is Dead”. The oddest aspect of that episode for me was the effort so many bloggers put into criticizing Graham by arguing that Microsoft couldn’t be dead because of the cash coming in – and not apparently even reading Graham on exactly that point, or understanding what his point was in the first place. A reflexive need to argue perhaps, and a great opportunity to get up on Techmeme, but not much of a “conversation”.
